 We have a storage closet down the hall from our office.  We need wooden clothing rods cut to fit some specific areas and mounted so that we can hang donated clothing for our young people on these rods.  We don’t have the rods yet or the brackets.  Someone would have to bring a power saw and figure out the supplies that would be needed because I don’t think we’re best at figuring that out so that the rods will be stable.  A helper to move the clothing may be helpful. 
We have two wooden picnic tables on our courtyard outdoor class room.  They need to have one board replaced that has curled.  Both picnic tables need re-stained to protect the wood.  We have the stain.
